Finlay House

Finlay House is located on an elevated rural site in North Otago with stunning views overlooking the Waitaki Valley. Due to a geo-tec report highlighting the possibility of unstable ground, the design incorporates a lightweight steel and timber floor structure which support the house.


Our build was a joy from start to finish.

To enjoy the outdoor aspect for as much of the year as possible, a central covered deck enables its owners to enjoy outdoor entertaining through a variety of weather and seasons.


Katrina and Alister did an outstanding job designing our house for us; we liked their design philosophy and, in working through the design, we felt they struck a pleasant balance between aesthetic goals and practical and budgeting requirements for the home.

Steel is complimented with schist stone and cedar weatherboards, which were also used on the interior of the home to contrast the painted white surfaces.
